Port Charles Transcript Wednesday 3/21/01

By John

Frank: Hi.

Karen: Sorry. Do I know you from somewhere?

Frank: I am sorry about last night. I said I would call. I should have called, but --

Karen: You got hung up. Let me guess -- she's about this high, this wide, ugly as sin, lives in your garage?

Frank: I know you think I'm crazy, but that old computer works. I made contact again.

Karen: I'm sorry. You've mistaken me for someone that gives a damn.

Lucy: I am actually capable of keeping a secret, you know?

Ian: Can I buy you a beer?

Lucy: You're changing the subject. All right, but I want you to know you can trust me.

Ian: I know I can trust you, but I don't know if I can trust myself to explain what may be a very sensitive situation.

Lucy: Aha, sensitive. You said that word. Ok, so this situation between you and Eve and your little wife Arianna is sensitive, complicated, and dangerous, right?

Ian: I didn't say dangerous, did I?

Lucy: But maybe you wanted to because Victor said it. And Victor told me I couldn't ask him any more questions, but that doesn't mean if you feel the need to talk to me, you go ahead. Don't stop yourself.

Ian: I'm a man of few words, Lucy.

Lucy: Ok, then why don't you use those few choice words and just explain how Eve's doing in this situation. How is she?

Ian: Eve is going through more than any woman should have to.

Lucy: Because she loves you.

Ian: Hmm. I must be a lucky man, indeed.

Lucy: Yeah. So, ok, Mr. Lucky, I have a little advice for you. I've known Eve a long time, and she's not going to just wait around forever, you know.

Eve: Listen, Arianna --

Arianna: No, you listen, Eve. Stay away from my husband. Immigration is watching every step Ian and I make, trying to prove our marriage isn't real.

Eve: I know that and --

Arianna: Do you know what would happen if they saw you the way I just saw you and Ian, kissing -- like lovers? I'd be deported. And I would be killed the moment I set foot back home in my country. You're playing with my life with your disgusting behavior.

Eve: Hey! Just a minute. I'll be damned if I will stand here and let you call our behavior disgusting. Ian and I love each other.

Arianna: That doesn't mean --

Eve: No, listen to me. We have survived a lot together. We almost died.

Arianna: I understand.

Eve: Ok. Then understand this -- Ian and I will be together. We only stopped along the way to help you before we move on with our lives. Arianna, I know it looks like I'm the bad guy here, ok? But really, I'm not.

Arianna: You really are a beautiful woman, Eve.

Eve: What?

Arianna: A beautiful, educated, passionate woman -- and a doctor. You're everything a man in this country could wish for. It's only natural Ian wants to be with you.

Eve: But?

Arianna: But we both know I can't let Ian go. I can't and I won't.

Kevin: Livvie told me you'd done a job fixing the place up, but she didn't do it justice. Congratulations.

Alison: Thank you. I'm so proud, Kevin.

Kevin: You should be.

Alison: You know, and Livvie was right there. You know, anytime we needed an extra hand, she was right there to give it.

Kevin: I'm really glad that you two have become friends. She needs people that she can count on.

Alison: I know. Who doesn't, you know? Oh, ok, well, let me give you a tour.

Kevin: Ok.

Alison: Um, it's really not that big, so there's not a lot to show you, but --

Kevin: You hurt your leg.

Alison: Oh -- no, just an ankle, but I'm fine. Just another battle scar from Nana.

Kevin: Well, you've had plenty of those lately, haven't you?

Alison: Yeah. Actually, I have. But they just kind of seem to get easier and easier to get over, you know? What -- what is that look for?

Kevin: I'm really proud of you.

Alison: Thank you.

Lucy: Listen, you, I am serious here. I just don't think Eve is going to wait around forever, even for you.

Ian: She knows what's going on, and she knows how I feel about her.

Lucy: Ok. Well, that's very logical and that's great, and sometimes in your head, you know, you wait -- you wait and you wait and you wait and you wait. Then sometimes something happens in your heart and you can't wait anymore and you just snap and you got out and do something dreadfully stupid.

Ian: You're speaking from experience?

Lucy: Um, I'm an expert on something stupid.

Ian: Hmm. And who made you an expert?

Lucy: I'm not going to tell you. I don't want to share that right now. What I need to tell you is I don't want Eve to go out there and do something stupid.

Ian: Because?

Lucy: Because it could hurt or affect a lot of people.

Ian: Including you.

Lucy: Yes, me, and -- and Doc. I mean, you know, just for a minute, picture Eve going out and doing something stupid like throwing yourself back at Kevin. I don't want that to happen. I want to be the person throwing myself at Kevin every day for the rest of my life throughout time, thank you very much.

Ian: You can do that. It's nothing to worry about.

Lucy: You really think so?

Ian: Yeah. I know Eve a lot better than you think I do. In fact, I've always known her.

Lucy: That's very sweet. I mean, I get that part -- I mean, through the sands of time, through the facets of the Iwo Jima sands of time -- I get all that romance stuff. That's what you're talking about, right -- forever?

Ian: That's it.

Lucy: That's it. What do you mean that -- that's it. You're serious, aren't you? Are you -- wait, wait, wait, you're saying literally? Are you -- no, no, no, no, don't you dare do that. You're serious, aren't you? You literally believe that you knew Eve before in another lifetime? That's it, isn't it?

Arianna: My life is at stake, Eve. I can't let Ian go.

Eve: You can't blackmail him, either.

Arianna: I don't intend to.

Eve: You know damn well that he won't walk away from you if you're in trouble.

Arianna: That's just one of the reasons why I care about him so much.

Eve: Then if you care about him, why are you pushing him to be someplace that he doesn't want to be?

Arianna: Ian makes his own choices.

Eve: So do you, Arianna. Look, you have come so far and fought so hard to get here. You left your whole life behind -- your family, your friends, everything -- just so you could start a new life here. Now, is this the type of woman you want people to see you as? The kind of woman that will hold a man hostage to his honor?

Arianna: You just don't know.

Eve: What I know is that you will be forcing a man who doesn't love you, a man who saved your life, to give up his happiness and his dreams just to stay married to you. Is that the kind of woman you are? Is that the kind of woman you want to be?

Kevin: Wow! Would you look at this baby.

Alison: Well, you know about bikes, too?

Kevin: A little.

Alison: Well, Jamal bought this one cheap, and he's fixing it up for sale.

Kevin: I used to have one of these.

Alison: You used to ride a motorcycle?

Kevin: When I was younger.

Alison: Oh.

Kevin: When I lived in Switzerland, and, no, you don't have to act so surprised.

Alison: No, no, I'm not. I'm not surprised. Huh. I've got a great idea. Why don't you take this out for a ride?

Kevin: It's been a long time since I was on one of these.

Alison: Huh?

Kevin: No, I -- oh, what the heck. Ah.

Alison: Yeah, there you go.

Kevin: Ok, admit it -- I look as out of place as you thought I would.

Alison: No, no. Actually, I think you look kind of cool.

Frank: Karen, look.

Karen: Sorry, Frank. I'm on duty.

Frank: I would like to make this up to you. I know I screwed up, but this thing is nagging at me.

Karen: Yeah, obviously.

Frank: I just wish I knew who was sending me those messages and why she's doing it.

Karen: She? Oh, so your imaginary cyber buddy is a she? Well, now I understand why you're so interested. It's not a computer thing. It's a guy thing.

Frank: I'm not crazy, Karen.

Karen: I think old Nellie did her job. Ok, because of her, she got us together, and because of her, we started hanging out and getting close.

Frank: And Nellie's been our good-luck charm.

Karen: But three's a crowd, Frank. I don't think we need Nellie anymore.

Frank: You're talking about throwing her out?

Karen: No. I'd give her a decent burial first. But, yes, I think it's time. And I think it's time we got out of the garage and into another room before Nellie pulls apart what she brought together.

Ian: All I meant was that Eve and I are on the same wave length, rather like you and Kevin think you are.

Lucy: Don't do that to me. Look, you know me better than that. Don't -- don't snow me like that. Come on. We've talked about this. I really -- I do believe that people can be together in past lives and they keep meeting each other over and over again and they're together.

Ian: You do believe that, don't you?

Lucy: Yes, I do with all my heart. But all I have to go on is blind faith. I think what you're saying is you actually have proof. Don't you? I can feel that you do.

Ian: Let me tell you this. If -- if -- there were a way to go back to a past life, I probably wouldn't be talking about it.

Lucy: But you are talking about it. So you did -- you did. Oh, my God, you really had an experience with Eve, didn't you? Tell me. Ok, fine. You know what? If you won't tell me right now, I am going to climb up on this stool and I am going to yell to everybody loudly that I know something that they'd like to know.

Ian: Lucy, please --

Lucy: Ok, I'll get on my knees and beg you.

Ian: Please, no. Listen, listen. Don't make a spectacle of yourself, woman.

Lucy: Tell me, then, now. Tell me everything, please. Tell me.

Ian: Eve and I -- no. Eve and I had an experience. We went to a past life, and we were lovers.

Lucy: Oh, my God. I want to do that. You have to show me how.

Ian: No. No, no, no.

Lucy: Take me there. At least show me how. Please let me try. I want to do this.

Ian: Woman, there's no kit for this. It's a complex, dangerous thing, all right?

Lucy: Ok. Then just tell me this -- how many lives did you actually see?

Ian: I saw one. Eve saw two.

Lucy: Really? Ok. So in both, did you live happily ever after?

Ian: No. No, in both lifetimes, we died without being together. But I do think that this is the time. Right now, this is the time. No matter what the obstacles are, this is it.

Lucy: But you have to feel it, right? Don't you?

Ian: Yeah, and I do, but, um --

Lucy: But, um, but, um, what, Ian? Eve doesn't? She doesn't?

Ian: No, Eve thinks this is going to end the same way the others did.

Lucy: You don't believe that, do you?

Ian: I don't know.

Eve: I know you're not a horrible person, Arianna. You're just making a horrible choice. You know this isn't right, and in your heart, you know that Ian doesn't want this.

Arianna: Ian married me to save my life, but things have changed. We've grown so much closer over time. Ian cares for me. I know. I could tell when he kissed me. And it was wonderful. And there was much more behind it then he's willing to admit.

Eve: You misunderstood.

Arianna: Eve, I'm sorry. I didn't mean for this to happen. I didn't mean to fall in love with him.

Eve: I know that, Arianna. I believe you, I really do, but that doesn't change things. You know what Ian wants.

Arianna: It's only what he says he wants.

Eve: You have to listen to what Ian is telling you. You have to listen to what I am telling you.

Arianna: All I know for sure is that he's everything I've ever dreamed about. I love him.

Eve: This dream doesn't belong to you.

Arianna: Then Ian and I will have to make a new one together.

Eve: I won't let you do that.

Arianna: I won't let you stop me.

Ian: What's going on, here?

Eve: Ask your wife.

Frank: So you think I'm banging my head up against the wall trying to make Nellie work?

Karen: Right. And as a doctor, I must warn you that sustained head trauma isn't good. And as someone who cares about you, I think you could put your time to much, much better use.

Frank: What are you getting at?

Karen: Well, I prescribe lots of human companionship, long walks with me, romantic dinners with me, and lots of dancing with me.

Frank: All that matters is that you're home now with me, where you belong. And I guess I'm going to be pretty busy showing you how much you mean to me.

Karen: What about Nellie?

Frank: Well, looks like I've got a date with a dumpster.

Karen: Good. Because I don't want you looking at a screen. I want you looking at me. Frank, it took us a long time to find our way to each other. Let's not waste a moment on anything with us.

Singer: o/~ If I could save time in a bottle the first thing that I'd like to do is to save every day till eternity passes away just to spend them with you o/~

Kevin: Hey.

Lucy: Hey. I -- I just left you a message --

Singer: o/~ If words could make wishes come true o/~

Lucy: Wow. I just left you a message.

Kevin: Really? What did it say?

Lucy: It said I couldn't wait to see you.

Kevin: How come?

Lucy: Do I need a reason? Wait a minute. Is this -- you look amazing.

Kevin: I'll get to that. And, no, you don't need a reason, but I have a feeling that you do.

Lucy: Oh, yes. I do. I do. It's about soul mates. It's about how I believe that. You know how I believe that, you know, lovers could have been past lovers in past lives somewhere in time, right? I believe that, you know.

Kevin: Yeah, what about it?

Lucy: Ok, ok -- Doc, what if told you that it could actually happen? What if I told you there's a place that we can go -- maybe an island or somewhere -- that we could actually go back and relive our past lives together. What would you say?

Kevin: I'd say you'd be on the first boat there.

Lucy: Of course I would, but I certainly wouldn't go without you.

Kevin: Well, now, of course islands like that are always people BYOS.

Lucy: What?

Kevin: Bring your own soul mate.

Lucy: I'm serious. Oh, you know how I feel. I feel like we have been together for hundreds and hundreds of years. You feel that, too, don't you?

Kevin: I guess it's possible.

Lucy: It is. I think it is. Like, what if you were a pirate and maybe I was your wench, hmm? Or, but -- wait, wait, better, better. You were emperor of the entire world.

Kevin: Oh, I like it.

Lucy: And I was your courtesan, sent from a far-off land to fulfill your every single need.

[Kevin growls]

Lucy: No. No, no, wait.

Kevin: No, no, let's go with that one.

Lucy: No, no, what if I was empress of the world?

Kevin: Well, what would that make me?

Lucy: My slave boy.

[Kevin growls]

Lucy: Ok, you could be my consort or courtier -- ooh, because I love the thought of you in tight tights.

Kevin: Ah, you know what I want to see you in right now?

Lucy: Maybe your arms?

Kevin: Mm-hmm.

Lucy: Maybe one hand here, one hand here. Maybe you could see me in your bedroom with the candles all lit having an out-of-mind, out-of-body experience?

Kevin: Before we have that out-of-body experience --

Lucy: Uh-huh?

Kevin: Come with me.

Lucy: What?

Kevin: Come on.

Lucy: What --

Kevin: Come on.

Lucy: Where are we going?

Kevin: I have something to show you.

Lucy: What, what, what? Wow. Wow. Oh, my goodness. She's beautiful.

Kevin: Yes.

Lucy: This isn't -- this isn't yours, is it?

Kevin: Oh, this is all mine.

Lucy: Really? So this is what this jacket is all about? And this makes you what?

Kevin: The original easy rider. So what do you say? I'll be the big bad biker, and you can be my bad biker babe.

Lucy: You want to take me for a ride?

Kevin: Oh, get on.

Lucy: Ok. What do I hold on to?

Kevin: Oh, anything you can grab.

Lucy: Anything at all?

Kevin: Anything.

Lucy: Is this ok?

Kevin: That'll do.

Ian: What's the problem here?

Arianna: I'd just like to go home. Will you take me? I'd like to go now. If there's something you need to do, I can go myself.

Ian: No, no. I'll take you. I'll take you home.

Arianna: Thank you.

Ian: Eve --

Eve: No. Go ahead. Take her home.

Arianna: Uh, we'll see you soon, then, Eve?

Eve: Oh! Oh! Oh, well, well. You wussed out on that one, didn't you, Eve? Yep. I'm the new Eve. I am not going to allow my feelings to go there because the old Eve would have been right out that door after them causing some trouble. Yeah. Nope. It's the new Eve. I am patient and understanding and patient. Screw it. To hell with the old Eve. Maturity's for wussies, and patience is for somebody else. Hey, it's me. I was just checking to see if you were there. Well, why do you think? I want to come over. I am ready to party. Yes! The old Eve is back in town. Oh. Well, good. Line them up. I'll see you soon. Yep, the old Eve -- back in town with a vengeance.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Marika: You spent all of your time on that island with Eve Lambert. Isn't that the case, doctor?

Chris: Why haven't we ever gotten together?

Eve: What?

Chris: I said, why haven't we ever gotten together?
